. if you are in education, you might have a 401b plan. an ira is an individual retirement plan and that is for someone who is self-employed. that is where you have to take the money and go to the bank or financial institution to make a contribution. if you are an independent contractor like our other caller, that is where you will go and get that contribution. you will probably not get a match like a 401k. host: i have heard of a roth ira, what is that? guest: it is a security retirement products. the money goes into that plan before you pay taxes. a rtoh ira goes in after taxes but is treated differently when it comes out. one comes out, your money is not taxable as income. you have a choice of paying the taxes today because you think the tax rates are the lowest of they might be and the might go up in the future or would you rather get that extra 15-25% by not paying taxes now. many people today, younger people might be more interested in a roth ira because of where tax rates will be in another 10 years host: democrats line, hello. caller: i have this rotten feeling about all

of services, health care, education, and so on. places like the university of michigan, ann arbor, are a tremendous resource for entrepreneurs, people trying to develop new high-tech businesses. so it is a good sign to see that america still has a powerful industrial base, but it is diversifying into a wide range of new types of industries. so it is a large and complex economy. i don't know if you want to talk about the broader economy or not, but we can come back to it if you like. we have been seeing some improvement in the labor market. it is still not where we would like it to be. growth has been moderate. there are some positive signs to look at. one of the key positives that are already made reference to its housing. as you know, house prices in the u.s. fell 30% and the amount of construction fell extraordinarily over this recession. now for the first time really since 2007 or 2006 we are starting to see increases in production, rising house prices will affect household wealth. so that's one positive factor that will help us have a better year in 2013 and in 2014, i hope. i
